DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Florida officials say a crowd of more than 200 people gathered on a beachside road despite pandemic restrictions and were seen partying and dancing.

Police said fights and a shooting erupted Saturday around the same Daytona Beach commercial area injuring several people.

The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office shared helicopter images showing large crowds surrounding a car as men stand on the sunroof and out the windows throwing money around.

The Daytona Beach Police Department says the shooting was related to the beach incident.
